Laboratory technicians work in many different fields of science and medicine and work to detect, diagnose, and treat diseases in medicine while also researching and developing science and math theories to understand and manage scientific issues. Laboratory technicians are expected to operate, maintain, and install laboratory instruments as well as monitor experiments as they are performed within labs. Technicians are often hired to record observations and then calculate results before developing conclusions, and since these experiments are often needed by other scientists in the field, they must be able to keep accurate and detailed logs of all of their work.
